(Sadhguru): This human system in yoga we look at it as five sheaths or five layers, five layers of body. In the yogic system there is no such thing as mind. There is no such thing as anything. Everything is seen as body because we are looking at it as a technology for transformation. These are called Annamayakosha, manomayakosha, pranamayakosha, vigyanamayakosha and anandhamayakosha. Anna means the food that you have eaten what you call as my body is just the food that you have eaten. Isn’t it? It’s a heap of food, small or big is your choice. but it’s a heap of food whichever way, isn’t it?

As there is a physical body which you gathered from outside there is a mental body. When we say mind it is not here or there. Every cell in the body has it’s own intelligence. Every cell in the body has it’s own memory, isn’t it? So there is a body of mind so this is known as mental body or manomayakosha. So that is hardware; this is software. This hardware and software cannot do much unless plug it into quality power. So the third layer of the body is called pranamayakosha or the energy body.

These three are physical in nature. The next layer of the body is a transitory body which is known as vigyanamayakosha. It is a transitory body from physical to non-physical it is transiting. It does not ascribe to any of the physical qualities but at the same time it has not become completely non-physical either.

The fifth one is called as anandhamayakosha. In English language it translates into as bliss body. Bliss body does not mean there is a bubble of bliss inside you. We are calling it bliss body because in our experience whenever we touch it we become blissful. So we are calling it bliss body that’s not it’s nature. That’s what it causes for us. It is a non-physical dimension which is the source of everything that is physical.

If you align the physical body, the mental body and the energy body in proper alignment and balance there will be no physical or psychological ailments within you. It is just a dis-aligned state which causes all kinds of problems. When body comes to a certain ease there is no disease. So if you align these three things only then you have a passage, you have a possibility of touching the anandhamayakosha where blissfulness becomes a natural process. It is not that you are blissful about something; you are blissful because that is the nature of life.

To create health for yourself there are three fundamentals that you need to take care of food, activity and rest. When it comes to food one of the most important things you must be conscious of is on a certain day when you eat a certain type of food whatever you eat you must consciously notice how quickly does it digest and become a part of yourself. Any food that you eat, if it lasts over three hours that means you have eaten bad food and that is something either to be avoided or reduced in quantity. If food moves out of your stomach bag within three hours this means you are eating something that your system can handle efficiently it may not be the best food but your system is able to handle it and between one meal and the next meal if you create a clear gap of five to six hours and in between there is no other ingestion you will see the cleansing process in the system on the cellular level cleansing will happen and this cleansing on cellular level is most important and significant for a healthful life.

So between meals there must be at least five to six hours of space. If you are over thirty years of age two meals a day, two good meals a day will suffice. One in the morning and one in the evening. After the evening meal before you go to bed there must be a minimum of three hours and if there is a certain amount of physical activity not necessarily very heavy or strenuous activity – just simple walking or may be a dance or…

Sadhguru answers a student’s question on reservations in education at the third Bharatiya Chhatra Sansad (Indian Student Parliament). He explains that the only way to change this is to skill India. If we do not skill India, we will kill India he says. The reservations, when they were originally brought in, were meant to be for a short period of time, and it should be reviewed every few years on a localized basis.

****************************************

Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/are-reservations-in-educational-institutions-necessary/

Kanchan Jain (Agra/Uttarpradesh): Sir, my question is, as today, we are talking about unity on one hand and on the other, we have reservation in terms of admissions in colleges and job opportunities. (Applause) So isn’t it that it is bringing diversity in our thoughts? Because unity of the mind is the greatest necessity of the time and this is bringing in… bringing the diversity in our thoughts. So, how can we… what measures can we have to remove it?
Sadhguru: This whole reservation policy when it was envisioned, it was to be for a short period of time to correct a certain ill which had taken place… a certain injustice (Applause) which had happened for thousands of years… a certain injustice which had occurred for thousands of years. To fix that, we thought for a certain period of time, we will give a certain segment of people an extra advantage so that they can come, level with the rest of the society, but unfortunately we have not been able to fulfill this vision. Even today… even today in villages across the country, if you belong to a certain caste or creed, you cannot even enter a tea shop and have a tea; you’re not supposed to walk through certain streets, everything is separate. It’s a segregated society even today. If we do not change this and change this very soon and the only way to change it is to educate and skill India. If we do not skill India, you will kill it.

So, this has to happen at the earliest possible time because any kind of reservation if it lasts for too long, it will become a discriminatory process which is what you are talking about. So this onerous responsibility is there, that the discriminatory process that is being… even today practiced in the villages of India has to go. Youth have a role to play. We have done many things in this direction but still it has not been solved. It is a huge problem. When such a big problem is there, taking away that little advantage they have. It needs to be reviewed every few years whether it is necessary in a certain area or not, but such right-thinking policies are not possible. These things are all happening on electoral basis whether we will win the election with this policy or not – that has been the only goal. So, it is very important that it is addressed properly. This is one thing that you can do whichever constituency you belong to. The legislative members or the parliament members that you elect, the youth should participate in this and call for a debate with the people who want to stay… stand for election that, see, this is the statistic in our constituency. Do we need this or not this? Can we change it or not? A policy has to come on the national level that it is selective, not across the nation. In urban areas, definitely it may not be necessary, but in many rural areas, it is necessary because they have been disadvantaged for thousands of years.

Sadhguru answers a question about insomnia, and explains how some people may feel they are insomniacs even though they are actually getting enough sleep. When it does occur, insomnia could be due to either psychological issues, or problems on the cellular level.

****************************************

Transcript: http://isha.sadhguru.org/blog/video/insomnia-the-different-kinds-a-few-solutions/

Questioner: Could you please say something about insomnia? I’ve been suffering insomnia for nearly six years. So, could you give me some feasible instructions?

Sadhguru: Just go to sleep, hmm (Laughter).

Questioner: No, I wish I could do so (Laughs).

Sadhguru: Okay, please, please sit down. Insomnia may be occurring for various reasons. (Talks aside) There are some people who are sleeping well but they don’t know that they are sleeping well (Laughs). There are some people who are not able to sleep well because maybe their body needs a certain amount of rest and they believe it needs more, so they are just working themselves up. I’ve met so many people who are quite okay, but they think they are not sleeping enough because doc… doctor’s precs… prescription of eight hours, they are not sleeping, they are sleeping only four hours. They are well, it’s okay. If you’re well, you are not sleep deprived and you’re sleeping three-four hours a day, it’s perfectly fine, that’s a good condition to be in. Or there are people who are unable to sleep because of their psychological situations. There are certain people who are not able to sleep because of their cellular or genetic situation. Only if you are like that, it’s a… it’s a hard thing to fix, which you are not, okay? (Sadhguru Laughs) You are not genetically in that state. Or in a cellular way, your body cells will not allow you to sleep for some reason, there are many reasons as to why. So, if you’re not able to sleep, I think you should join our garden department (Laughter). Entire day, ten hours a day you work outside (Gestures), you’ll fall asleep (Laughs), very… If that doesn’t work, the simpler way is, if you get initiated into Shoonya meditation… The Shambhavi should do it. For most people, Shambhavi does this. If it did not work for you, if you’re initiated into Shoonya mediation, you will see it’ll correct the… the sleep disorder, if there is a sleep disorder. You’re looking qy… quite fine and happy. And if you are happy not sleeping, it’s great (Laughter). Yes, because sleep is death. Every day, people are dying for six hours or eight hours or four hours. What’s your choice? Less death or more death per day?
